Ride for Life Chicago - Emily
I am so excited to be a part of Ride for Life Chicago for the third year in a row -- though things will look much different this year than they have in the past.
Because of COVID-19 instead of the several hundred participants biking 200 miles across three states we have all decided to do a virtual mileage pledge and celebrate together via ZOOM on September 13th.
I'll be biking 200 miles on my own between now and September and continuing to fundraise and raise awareness for Test Positive Awareness Network.
TPAN provides lifesaving care and far-reaching education to men and women affected by HIV that improves the quality of life of everyone they touch. I know that things are uncertain but if you find yourself with enough to get through today please consider donating to help someone who doesn't.
Once again, I promise to shotgun a beer once I cross the finish line.
Through the Ride for Life Chicago, thousands of donors and more than 300 volunteer cyclists, advocates, crew, and team members help provide care to 2,000 people every year in Chicago and a lifeline of HIV health and treatment information to more than 100,000 people across the country. Our mission is to empower all lives affected by HIV and its many health challenges. The name “Ride for Life” reflects this event’s powerful impact: every mile, every donation and sponsorship, and every volunteer helps save lives through the work of TPAN and our community partners.
